How To Use This In The Classroom

Dive into the Mac App Store and download some education apps. There are a ton that are available only for the Mac and look great on either size iMac screen. Also be sure to get your students to use Skype or Google+ Hangouts on the iMac as the big bright screen makes for an engaging time. It's also better for the people on the other end of the video call as they see you a lot better. That's instead of a classroom-sized webcam shot where every student is pixelated. The iMac helps a lot here.

Key Info

The giant screen is a simple and straightforward way to bring a streamlined and powerful tool into your edtech toolbox.

What Teachers Should Know

I'd recommend being very careful with how you set up your iMac 'area' in the classroom. Other than that, be sure you have the proper security controls and privacy controls all set up before letting others use it.

What Students Should Know

Try out your hand at web design, Skype chats, and even some desktop apps available from the Mac App Store. Get your teacher's permission before downloading anything, though.

Pros

The Apple iMac is one of the most underrated tools in the modern teacher's arsenal. The massive screen can be used as a display for videos, an interactive screen for Skype chats, and just about anything else. It's a reliable and trusted product that's getting thinner and faster every time a new one comes out.

Cons

It can be pretty costly to actually get one of these monsters into your classroom. You need to get approval, of course, but it's not the cheapest way to get a big monitor into your classroom. It's also overpowered for what most classrooms need. Problem is, you pay the premium price tag for that power whether you need it or not.

The Official Description

The first iMac was a revolution: An all-in-one computer that put everything — display, processor, graphics, storage, memory, and more — inside one simple, stylish enclosure. Countless innovations later, we’ve raised the bar yet again. iMac includes the most advanced, most brilliant desktop display we’ve ever built, and it’s filled with the latest high-performance technologies. Yet it’s just 5 mm thin at its edge with up to 40 percent less volume than the previous generation. To do all that required unprecedented feats of engineering — and imagination. We invented new technologies, pioneered new manufacturing techniques, and devised all-new ways to do more in less space.

One of the biggest challenges our engineers faced with this design was how to join the front to the back. The enclosure is so thin, it’s not possible to weld the pieces using traditional methods. So we searched far and wide for other ideas, and we found one in a process called friction-stir welding. It’s commonly used on airplane wings, rocket booster tanks, and other parts that simply can’t fail. This process uses a combination of intense friction-generated heat and pressure to intermix the molecules of the two aluminum surfaces — creating a seamless, precise, and superstrong join. You may not see it, but this iMac wouldn’t be possible without it.
